• When do I qualify for activism grants?

    You have done (or are still doing) a board function with a recognized organization (see FOBOS, Appendix B) to which activism grants have been allocated.

    During the period on the board, you were enrolled as a fulltime bachelor- or master student and paid UT tuition fee. Pre-master students are not eligible for activism grants.

    You have a positive binding recommendation (BSA) for the educational programme for which you were enrolled during your board function. In case of a deferred recommendation, the decision on the activism grants for the concerning student will be postponed until there is a final recommendation.

    The period in the board was withing the C+1 period. This is for the:
    Bachelor: the first 4 years counted as from the first moment of enrolment for a bachelor traject in higher education;
    Master: the first 2 years of a one-year master as from the moment of enrolment for master traject in higher education. For a two- or three-year master, the C+1 period is respectively 1- or 2 years longer.
    For a member of the University Council, theC+1 period does not apply.

  • When can an individual student file an application for activism grants?

    As soon as the organization has submitted their group application, every individual student on that application will receive an automated email (UT mailbox). You will be asked to complete the application with your personal data (IBAN) and to approve the application.
    The application will be handled as soon as all students on the application have completed it with their data and approved the application.
    If grants are applied for you, and you no longer have a UT-mail account, please contact the CPO registry.

  • What happens when everybody has completed/approved the application?

    The CPO registrar checks if everyone meets the conditions of the regulation. If that's the case, all individual students will receive a decision per email, which states the total amount and the date it will be transferred to your bank account.
    If one or more students don't comply with the conditions of the regulation, the registrar will contact the student who filled the application, in order to discuss whether the application can be adjusted.

  • I can't complete/approve the application because I don't have a UT-account anymore. What to do?

    Please contact the CPO registrar.

  • What is the status of my application?

    If you have submitted (send) the application, in the application system under 'my applications' you will see 'concept'. As soon as all student on the group application has completed their part, the status of your application changes into 'handling'. If the application has been handled, the status changes into 'decision".

  • What is the amount of the activism grant?

    From the calendar year 2020 onwards, a distinction will be made between full-time and part-time activism:
    Fulltime activism: a grant is equal to 1/12e of the tuition fee due on 1 September preceding the concerning calendar year
    Parttime activism: € 170 per grant.

  • I am a pre-master student. Am I eligible for activism grants?

    No.

  • I already have a degree and therefore I pay the UT institutional tuition fee. Am I eligible for activism grants? 

    No.

  • Only in the C+1 period, one could get activism grants. What is C+1?

    The C+1 period is the nominal course duration plus one extension year per study phase. This is for the:
    Bachelor: the first 4 years counted as from the first moment of enrolment for a bachelor traject in higher education;
    Master: the first 2 years of a one-year master as from the moment of enrolment for master traject in higher education. For a two- or three-year master, the C+1 period is respectively 1- or 2 years longer.

    When you graduate within the C+1 period, the period for which you are eligible for activism grants ends.

    For a member of the University Council, the C+1 period does not apply.

  • Previous to my current study programme, I have been enrolled in another course of study. What are the consequences?

    The C+1 period starts at the first moment of enrolment in Higher Education. So, in this case, C+1 will start on the first moment you have been enrolled in your previous study programme. This means that the period at the UT in which you are eligible to grants is shorter.

  • I also have had personal circumstances during the period on the board. What does this mean for me?

    When you have received activism grants for a calendar year and then over (part of) that period applies for a force majeure allowance, the CPO will take this into account.
    So for example, if you were sick or had to do with special family circumstances, you can get a force majeure allowance. The CPO, who will make a decision in determining the support will deduct the number of activism grants awarded from the calculated force majeure allowance.

  • Is there a maximum to the number of grants I can get per year?

    Yes, the maximum number of grants per year is 12. This maximum is for all grants (activism, top-level sports and/of top-level arts).
    However, if you were registered for less than 12 months during the calendar year in question, you can never receive more activism grants for that calendar year than the number of months registered.

  • Is there a maximum to the number of grants I can get during the enrolment period on the UT?

    Yes, the maximum number of grants for the whole enrolment period on the UT is 24 (up to a maximum amount of € 8,000)

  • Do I have to pay taxes when receiving activism grants?

    No, an activism grant is a compensation out of the Profiling Fund (WHW 7.51) which is not taxable.

  • I am a student from a non-EEA country. What does the study progress monitoring within the framework of the Modern Migration Policy (MoMi) means?

    Check de MoMi regulations. There is stated if MoMi standard can be adjusted based on your activities.
